A successful urban quest
It all starts during an urban exploration in the attic of a disused sanitarium where the designer Henri Lavallard Boget found a 50’s resin shell. It was the beginning of a rough and creative adventure that ends up with a great collection of unique concrete chairs.
Introducing the Hauteville concrete chairs family
And now, with wooden feet
This variant of Hauteville chairs includes a birch plywood base. The concrete shell remains the same. The wood brings a little sweetness and warmth to these iconic chairs. Birch plywood has a clear hue that blends well with concrete to give it more Scandinavian tones.

What makes our concrete unique
We won't give you our secrete recipe (we’ve been working on the perfect proportioning for more than 5 years), but like every concrete, our blend is made of water, sand and cement.
We also add a pinch of fiberglass to make our concrete lighter and more resistant. Some of our products are reinforced with rebars and/or a wire mesh.
You will always find visible pores and micro-cracks on our concrete furniture and accessories because we love concrete like this. But we have little tricks to give it a soft and warm touch...
INSTRUCTIONS AND CARE
- Any pores, micro-cracks, and variations in color are due to the material's inherent and charming nature
- Product comes with pre-applied finish that protects the integrity and natural look of the material
- Never use abrasive materials, solvents, acids, or high pressure cleaners when maintaining the product
- To clean, use a soft, clean cloth
- It's recommended to regularly apply wax or water/oil repellents normally used for stone, marble, and concrete
